Circles of Dignity: Community Wisdom and Theological Reflection

Synopsis

"Guided by his remarkable experience with South African indigenous groups and popular religion, Cochrane shows how marginalized people read the Bible and how their "local wisdom," or "incipient theologies," offers new perspectives on power, tradition, and God, as well as new notions of ministry, church, and religion's role in the public sphere. Leveraging the insights at the margin to displace the center, Cochrane's work is a blueprint for a socially transformative theology." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
